Temple of Antoninus and Faustina



My wife, daughter and I went to Italy November 2nd 2015.  I have tons of photos and I hope to begin putting most of the up soon.  It was one of the best trips I’ve ever taken.  We did many tours (Which I recommend) and overall the trip was fascinating.  Shown here is the Temple of Antoninus and Faustian. I was in amazement with this building because if you look at the columns they literally cut them out in one piece.  Typically columns are stacked in smaller pieces and these were simply carved out of the mountains in one piece.  To do that is amazing and to move such gigantic columns is unbelievable.  The Temple of Antoninus and Faustian was located at the Roman Forum and the Roman forum is a must see if you go to Rome.
